On Sunday, April 14, 2013, Surrey Off Road Cycling Enthusiasts (SORCE) and the Shed Bike Club hosted the first of the 2013 Twoonie Race Series at the Delta Watershed. The local race attracted 34 racers from all over the Lower Mainland, paying just $2 to register for this affordable race. SORCE or Shed Bike Club membership was required. The skies were clear as mountain bikers raced in three different categories, novice, intermediate and expert. The muddy but fun course was suitable for all levels, attracting many first time racers to the event. “Everyone had a really great time,” said Jordan Proctor, SORCE President. “As a bike club we are focused on creating many more fun events for our members, from Twoonie Races, to bike festivals, to group rides.” The second race in the SORCE Twoonie Race Series will take place on Saturday, May 11 at the South Surrey Bike Park. Check in starts at 9 a.m., and the race kicks off at 10 a.m. Participants can register online through the club’s website at http://www.sorcebikeclub.org/. For insurance purposes, all participants are required to have a valid 2013 SORCE membership. Membership has its benefits, including discounts from select sponsors, a free pair of SORCE socks, and the ability to participate in group rides, the Twoonie Race Series and more! In partnership with the Shed Bike Club, SORCE members can also join the Shed’s weekly group ride every Tuesday evening. The group meets at 6:30 p.m. at the Pinewood Elementary School parking area. Thanks to SORCE, the South Surrey Bike Park was developed over 10 years ago and has been maintained by the club since that time. SORCE was also integral in the development of Invergarry Bike Park in cooperation with the City of Surrey. In addition to ensuring there are lots of off-road places to ride in Surrey, SORCE also makes sure that children have an opportunity to be introduced to the sport. In 2012 the club worked with the City of Surrey to offer summer riding camps. This year we were able to offer Spring Break camps for kids and will have summer camps through the City of Surrey again. Moving forward, SORCE will continue to advocate for bike parks and off-road cycling in Surrey.
